Your Wine at Auction
Send in a list of your wine collection along with any other details you have on
the purchase and storage conditions to
I will then determine a value
your wine for you with suggested reserves (minimum sale value) with low and high
price estimates of the wines.
For the fastest possible turn around, please send your list in using the format below (a
spreadsheet would be ideal):
It would also help if you can provide the following
(if available) when you send your
wine list in:
- Which state your wine has been stored in the longest.
- Where it is stored now.
- The general storage conditions.
- Where your wine was purchased (ie. Gift, retailer etc.).
Reserves are confidential, agreed upon in advance of the sale, and understood as
the minimum selling price. My aim is to achieve a fair market price for your wine.
You do not have to agree with the reserve price that I suggest, however, if it is
significantly different then I may ask you to pay a listing fee (refunded if the
wine achieves your reserve) .
For current market prices on Penfolds Grange >>
Consignors pay a small selling commission that is deducted from the purchase or
hammer price. This charge is deducted only when the wine is sold and there is no
charge for items unsold (unless you have agreed to pay a listing fee). In addition
there is no minimum handling fee and the commission includes storage, insurance
(once in storage) and cataloguing. Please contact me to discuss the commission rate.
If your wines are suitable for auction and you wish to sell,
we can arrange for them to be picked up or you can arrange to have
them delivered to our preferred storage company in Adelaide (Kennard's). When you
deliver your wines you will need to provide a detailed listing of all your wine.
I will inspect the wines at my earliest opportunity and issue you a receipt.
DO NOT SHIP YOUR WINES IN HOT WEATHER AS HEAT EXPOSURE CAN DAMAGE YOUR WINEN DAMAGE YOUR WINE
Buyers have 14 days after an auction closes to pay their bill. Some buyers may
take a little longer and a number of reminders, but this is no cause for concern
as wine is not released until it has been paid in full.
I take the confidentiality of my clients very seriously. All transactions are kept
strictly confidential. Unless compelled to by law, I will not disclose any personal
or business information to any outside party for any reason.
